Brandywine Ballet is proud to announce the return of Nancy Page’s Dracula. Brandywine Ballet continues its residency at its home theater at the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall on the campus of West Chester University in downtown West Chester, Pennsylvania. Performances will take place October 20-22, 2017.
Based on the 19th century Bram Stoker novel, the mysterious story of Dracula takes place in an old, stone castle set in Europe. Prince Dracula and his bride Elisabeta are madly in love when the Prince is called to lead his nation into battle. Believing that her beloved has been killed, Elisabeta takes her own life. Upon his return, the Prince finds his bride has died, and becomes a madman in his heartbreak. He vows ‘never to die’, and terrorizes the lands as an evil vampire. The ballet is a story of his love, passion, and a Curse that may never be lifted. This tale of madness, heartbreak, and a reunion of two lovers will excite, thrill, and shock audiences.
Artistic Director Donna L. Muzio founded Brandywine Ballet in 1979. Bringing together professional, pre-professional, students, and special guest dancers from diverse artistic backgrounds and experiences, Brandywine Ballet has established itself as a formidable platform for dance training and performance in the Greater Philadelphia region. Brandywine Ballet is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is supported by admission fees, sponsorship, grants, and contributions.
